Monday Madness

As part of the journey to continue to get this blog set up properly, and grow it's readership so I become eligible to qualify for the best deals to share with you, I set up the Networked Blogs syndication. It created a facebook page for me that you can "like" and it will show updates on your homepage so you can get realtime notices of new posts. Also, it only lets me invite 12 facebook friends per day, so if you know anyone who would enjoy my posts, please pass the site info along to them. Thanks;)

I was a little overzealous with the Friday Social Parades, as it was my first time participating and I had NO IDEA so many people linked to them. I do consider it a success though because my unique page hits increased, my Google Friend Connect numbers increased, and my twitter following exploded from zero (i didn't realize it was private before, LOL) to 62! I participated in a smaller one today, and plan to try one per day for steady growth.

In addition, I found some really wonderful blogs that I think I will enjoy, and I subscribed to them via email. One in particular has a son with medical issues that are really similar to Aaron's, and she lives in our same metropolitan area! I can't believe we haven't run into one another at any specialist appointments yet.

So if you are a regular reader, or a new blog hop follower, please take a moment to look around. If you enjoy the content, please consider following or subscribing in one or all;) fashions available. Also, please leave me a comment and I would love to follow you back!
